Yesterday CBS News anchor Scott Pelley asked Obama if he thought the Boy Scouts should open their ranks to gays. Of course Obama agreed they should, saying “Gays and lesbians should have access and opportunity the same way everyone else does.”

So I guess, based on that logic, Obama must also believe that Muslims should allow gays to be members of their mosques, even having gay Imams. I’d love for someone to ask him that question. Of course you know he’d say that about Christianity.

***

According to Fox News, today religious groups are going to pressure the Boy Scouts to stand strong and maintain the ban on gays:

On Monday a group of 42 religious groups will publish a half-page ad in USA Today calling on the Scouts to resist political and economic pressures to lift the ban.

The group is taking out a major advertising buy tomorrow denouncing the Scouts’ decision to consider changing their longstanding policy prohibiting openly gay Scout leaders or Scouts.

“To the Boy Scouts of America: Show courage,” the advertisement read. “Stand firm for timeless values.”

Below is the ad:

    At every turn, Obama continues to push America to turn its back on God and what is Right and Moral. Obama is intent on destroying everything that was ever good and right about America.

    • Patriot077

      You are so right! Whether it is Hobby Lobby or the Catholic hospitals, the Boy Scouts, or the Christian groups at universities this, administration is hell bent on forcing an agenda that does NOT permit any freedom of conscience. When a private business cannot refuse service for whatever reason and is penalized if the refusal is due to “sexual orientation” it is time for every.single.organization or business to stand up and fight. We must stand with them as we did for Chick-fil-a which was demonized for the CEO voicing an “objectionable” personal opinion. God help us all.

      As we all know, it is the dogma of the Left. The govt is the religious entity and cannot be in charge if people feel they are individuals with their first allegiance to the God of the Bible.

  • TickedWhiteDude

    So what’s new? President Sandusky weighs in on everything. Im surprised he didn’t do the halftime show last night.

  • Rshill7

    Might as well disband the Boy Scouts if they cave on this. All of their creeds, pledges, oaths, books etc. will be 100% BS. Their Christian founding, will be buried, just as the Christian founding of many of our colleges are now. Consider the crap factories they have become. We don’t need another.

    Scouts, remember, freedom of association. Don’t give that up. Stand on, under, beside, or behind the Constitution which guarantees it.

    • Landscaper

      They won’t need to disband. Moms and Dads will yank their sons out of there so fast it will make their head spin. No members, no money and no Scouts.
      They must stand against this political crapolla.

      • Rshill7

        “No members, no money and no Scouts.” (Lansdscaper)

        That’s whatchacall disbanding :-)

        • Landscaper

          Disband sounds more like [surrender]
          No members or money sounds more like [bankruptcy]

          • RighteousCrow_JustCaws

            Absolutely! Excellent!

      • http://navygentleman.com/cvn2 Red47

        Yes. And the gaps left will be filled by the gays who wish to move up into the leadership and change the point-which is to make moral non-relativist men out of boys. The BSA will become something else. People will have to say, “I got my Eagle BEFORE…” or the boys and girls in Venturing Crews will use the disclaimer as well, “I got my Silver and got out just BEFORE the change”. The lesbians have destroyed the Girls Scouts in many areas of our country.

        • Landscaper

          We have 2 sons and 2 daughters, so we enjoyed our own scouting activities as a family.

    • notsofastthere

      The fact that the Scouts are even considering this issue again shows the issue is not going away. Sexual abuse in the church went on for years and damaged many children before we ever found out. Is this what adult leaders of the Scouts look forward to – destroying childrens lives?

  • sDee

    Thank you TRS for the courage to say what no other media will.

    The truth is lost – buried by the very institutions trusted with it under the protections of the Constitution.

    Unless this changes, the world will complete its ‘progress’ to tyranny.

  • skyemantaray

    Both my husband and brother are proud Eagle Scouts. I wonder how this will effect their attitude toward that title.
    I have had the privilege of serving as a cub scout den leader. Those little boys are so pure and are at such a critical point in their lives. It almost broke my heart to watch how the world was trying to pull them one way while the scout program was trying to make them into young men. My blood boiled after I heard Sandra Fluke, in the wake of the Newtown tragedy, say with all certainty that the “way we are raising boys” needs to change. Ms. Flukemay harp about a phony “war on women”, but there is a real war on boys going on in this country. If the Boy Scouts cave on this issue they are going to be party to it.

    • aliswell

      In order to better define exactly what a war on women looks like, Fluke needs to spend one night ~ just one night ~ in Tahrir Square sans any sort of protection. She would return home with a whole new attitude and outlook. IF she returned.

      • skyemantaray

        I’ll buy her ticket.

      • http://navygentleman.com/cvn2 Red47

        She may take her contraception with her if she chooses.

    • 80s_kid_wants_rainbow_back

      You’re not kidding about the war on boys, not just morality wise but behavior wise as well. I’m reading a book, The Way of Boys, in which the author talks about the feminizing of our little dudes, how they are being kicked out of preschools, overdiagnosed with add, adhd, aspergers, etc and unnecessarily medicated because they do not develop and behave as their female peers do. Sad and disturbing stuff. Hopefully everyone who comments here takes a few mins to contact the Boy Scout Org and voice your concern, I know I sure am. Sorry but a gay guy being responsible for these boys is like putting an alcoholic in front of a free mini bar.

  • notsofastthere

    We are constantly bombarded with comments like, we must withdraw our troops, we can’t put them in harms way, or citizens with guns put police in harms way. But now it’s OK to allow children who are unable to defend themselves against an adult pervert, to be placed in harms way. To see the president boldly sanction same sex adults in charge innocent children, is way beyond words.
    He is following Hitler in that gaining control of our youth, you gain control of the country. Arne Duncan our chief educator promotes gay rights, now Obama supports placing children at risk with leaders in the Boy Scouts who are prone to sexual assult.
    Obama never has a problem weighing in on private organizations, but Benghazi?

  • Sober_Thinking

    This lame idiot has weighed in on numerous topics that have nothing to do with him. No one cares what you have to say about the Boy Scouts Mr. pResident. If the topic is anti-American or will destroy the fabric of our society, count on this domestic terrorist to do the wrong thing for America.

    Scott Pelley is really becoming a cutting edge journalist eh? Way to ask this monster the tough questions Scott…

  • martha chandler

    Why should the boy scouts become a gay-rights organization?

    • http://navygentleman.com/cvn2 Red47

      Because they have young boys in them who are not indoctrinated. Oh…rhetorical question…

  • c4pfan

    The bullying continues!

  • Orangeone

    What comes to my mind is “If I had a son he’d look like Treyvon” and how Barky Boy tried Mr. Zimmerman in the press. He was wrong then and he is wrong now. Do the Boy Scouts really need to expose their young members to this disgust? The gays and lesbians can form their own organizations, they do with other things and then prohibit straight people from joining.

    • tinlizzieowner

      Exactly. They can call them ‘The Person’s Scouts’. ;-)

  • Conniption Fitz

    The world has swallowed the sexual activists’ propaganda hook, line and sinker.

    First – there is no such thing as a ‘straight-gay’ dichotomy or ‘sexual orientation’ or a ‘sexual identity.’

    These are all invented terms for the purpose of promoting, normalizing and defending deviant sexual behavior.

    Same-sex attraction, both male and female, is abnormal and a symptom which is statistically correlated with other mental health issues: violence, depression, addictions and suicide.

    Same-sex sexual activity, particularly with males, is very high risk with a greatly increased incidence of HIV and all other STDs, some of which are incurable, as well as cancers and injuries.

    http://daleoleary.wordpress.com/2012/11/30/the-syndemic-of-stds-among-gay-men/

    It is STUPID, bizarre, surreal for Obama to promote homo-bi-etc. sexuality in schools and Boy Scouts when it is so UNHEALTHY physically and UNHAPPY emotionally and relationally and so UNHOLY Spiritually – not one Scripture ever approves, affirms or exempts homosexual or bisexual activity or orientation in any way – not one.

    In fact, Scripture (I Corinthians 6:9-20) says people can and must come out of the deadly ‘gay’ lifestyle and have new lives in Christ:

    “Do not be deceived, neither the impure, immoral, idolators, adulterers nor those who participate in homosexuality, nor cheats, swindlers, thieves, greedy, drunkards, foulmouthed revilers, slanderers, extortioners, nor robbers will inherit a share in the kingdom of GOD. And such were some of you…the body is not meant for sexual immorality…Shun immorality and all sexual promiscuity – flee from impurity. Any other sin which a man commits is one outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.”

    The psychological and medical clinical practice, police and coroner statistics, biological and epidemiological evidence all confirm this Scripture.

    In the Obama crowd’s mind, Lady Gaga is normal and their bizarre alternate/opposite of truth and reality world is like living in a Salvador Dali painting….or a Carnival House of Mirrors.

  • Sandra123456

    4 more years of this creep? (sigh, facepalm)

    Do boys under 12 have any idea of what their sexuality is and why should they?

    Why should the President of the United States be speaking about sex?

    Can we impeach now for low moral turpitude?

  • aliswell

    Soetoro makes no secret of being the most iconclastic individual to ever hold a US government seat, let alone the presidential seat. He revels in each new brick of the American way of life he dismantles.

    He should enjoy it while he can, for he will reap what he has sown.

  • Conniption Fitz

    There is a concentrated campaign by sexual deviants and predators to get to our children and to compromise and confuse them sexually in order to recruit them into the gay lifestyle.

    It’s called grooming – a seduction of the vulnerable whose fathers are absent or apathetic:
    http://www.billmuehlenberg.com/2012/11/28/attacking-our-children-in-schools/
    http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/graphic-sex-ed-programs-for-schools-grooming-children-to-have-sex-childrens

    WHY is Obama so adamant that gay-bi-homo-etc. sex be promoted and normalized?

    WHY is this (along with contraception and abortion) such a big priority that he would give hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to do this?

    It’s in all of his speeches, all of his policies…even foreign aid is contingent upon affirming homo-bi-etc sexuality, contraception and abortion.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/44F4AB4VSCTOCHBMBG4ZWWD5OU Laurel

      Conniption I witnessed this happening in the High Schools here. It is why I don’t believe gays are born that way.

      • http://navygentleman.com/cvn2 Red47

        I hung out with gays and lesbians in college and after. Make no mistake, they recruit. Anyone who says differently is uninformed or lying.

          Thank you! If you think about it they would have to. It is the closest thing to a natural progression they can have. And majorities win elections and have power of course. Majorities can set the moral standards as well.

    Obama lies with ease and that should disturb anyone with a brain cell.

    He has always been pro gay everything.

    Boy Scouts right now in Solano County California are being sued for a gay scoutmaster molesting boys in the 70’s and BSA are accused of looking the other way to avoid scandal and lawsuits.

    Openly admitting gays will kill the BSA and you will see a lot more Solano Counties pop up.

    This fake DL brother is as soft as a tooty fruity.

    The TN inmate who said “I likes me some booty” loves Obama.

    What happens on the camping trips? Gay tent, normal tent ?
    Gay leaders with young boys = BIG TIME TROUBLE.

    • http://navygentleman.com/cvn2 Red47

      That is a good point. The boys have to buddy up and adults are not allowed to sleep with the boys unless they are parent and offspring. Which boy will be forced to sleep with the gay one? Sexual preference is not something that should even come up in a Scout Troop or Venturing Crew.

  • TickedWhiteDude

    I say, let some gays into Obama. I bet he would change his tune.

    • 57thunderbird

      I think they have already been there.

    Being gay is a choice.
    Being a scout is a choice.

  • Conniption Fitz

    Teens and boys are still in the process of developing their identity. The sexual activists, who want to normalize, seduce and recruit boys, know this is is a critical time when the kids, particularly those with distant, dysfunctional fathers are easy targets for seduction and recruitment.

    Here is the disastrous result of the Obama crowd’s metrosexual (anything and everything goes) social engineering:

    Can We Please Just Start Admitting That We Do Actually Want To Indoctrinate Kids?

  • keninil

    BSA’s official attitude toward LGBT over the last 20+ years that I have been affiliated is “Don’t ask, Don’t tell”, we don’t want to know, if you force us to find out, we will have to do something about it. Mostly BSA tries to be asexual, it also throws hetros out for overt demonstrations, like a couple(married or unmarried) having loud sex at a campout or even a couple acting like newlyweds (kissing and pawing each other) in front of the kids. So it’s not that it discriminates against LGBT, it just doesn’t want to know. That being said I have known a number of Eagle scouts, camp counselors, and adult volunteers that are gay, you just need to know them really well before you can deduce it — they will not tell you.

    • http://navygentleman.com/cvn2 Red47

      Yep. As it should be. when you force your way into an organization that is designed to build character, you don’t force your way in based on your sexual proclivities, no matter how mainstream or deviant.

  • cabensg

    Obama is so evil it oozes from every pore.

    Who supports this evil? Those who are also evil and depraved and those who can’t confront evil for what it is.

  • crosshr

    So true and I hope O is not the devil tho he behaves accordingly.

    Bad much that 50% +&- of the population of America are in his sand box, either by being deceived with free stuff, designed rhetoric like racist or class warfare, and some,with freedom they are given act as a catalyst that enable their usual plain evil behaviors and desires. That’s bad news !

    The GOOD News,a remnant of the population loves America and what it stand for. We are not going to fall asleep on our feet, neither look the other way. Let us not give up on this fight to maintain our country and what it stands for so SHE stays on course( is it cause or course, someone correct me please)

    Some among us that are capable of dealing with legal issues and can provide ideas and ways, please don’t fall asleep,and you don’t have to make a proclamation about it. Just let us know and help in directing and pointing out point of attack or defense.

    I am more of a “man behind the package”, and out in the field. I am willing to support with finance and with many other physical needs as they arise.

    As we now all see, tell me who’s going to save us from the onslaught of the enemy of freedom, besides you and I. Who’s going to restore liberty and allow prosperity for our children and grandchildren. May we help our self as God help is helping us.

    Let someone else start their own group for people with different beliefs. Leave the Boy Scouts as it is. I’m tired of watching these groups, companies fall for the political crap. Stand strong. You don’t have to treat anyone badly, you just don’t have to give in to their lifestyles.

  • Wisewoman2

    Only a truly ignorant person would make such a statement when it comes to children’s welfare and protection. Saying that “Gays and lesbians should have access and opportunity the same way everyone else does” simply put means that he thinks that homosexuals should have access to vurnerable children in isolated situations such as camping with no one else around. The man is either a fool or the devil’s playmate.

    • http://navygentleman.com/cvn2 Red47

      Not supporting Preezy’s position, as he came from a family that allowed a pedophile access to him, but there are strong safeguards in place when Scouts go camping. So many that it can seem silly until you realize that your kids are really at risk. The changes will occur when the homosexuals get into leadership positions. Many of the traditions that I have seen are not compatible with what I have seen from the gay activists. I know normal gay people who are great neighbors, but I do not want the aberration as a role model for my sons. They are in Scouts to learn how to be men, not to have an example of sexual abnormality to bond with. If gays want to be in Scouting, they need to be not openly gay.

  • warpmine

  • NCHokie02

    I was never a boy scout. I have four boys of my own now. If they openly let gays in they will also never be boy scouts.

    It’s the whole “diversity!!! unless you disagree with me….” game that the left always plays. Gays infiltrated the catholic church a long time ago. Thats why you had so many cases of boys being molested. That was a huge media uproar about the catholic church yet the media looks the other way when it’s common practice in muslim cultures.
